My name is Katy, and Smiley is the nickname that my mum sometimes used. I am a well-being writer, blogger and mental health advocate who lives in England (UK). I have worked hard to overcome my trauma, and I write about my experiences to help others in similar situations. I am also the founder of PTSD: My Story Project, a safe place for trauma survivors to share their stories in order to raise awareness of PTSD and inspire others. I continue to share my journey on my Journeyofsmiley blog.
